“This is very moist and delicious cookie bar that has been in my family for years. Always roll in granulated sugar and store in a container with a tight lid.”

I loved these! I found that the texture is more like a quick bread than a bar cookie.

This is - quite simply - gingerbread! Sorry, but this should not be classified as a bar cookie. It is, however, good, moist, delicious gingerbread! Will serve it cut in squares with a lemon or orange sauce. I used 1 C brown sugar & 1 C Splenda and subbed Canola oil for shortning. Turned out perfect!
